So it was fascinating to watch this video of six middle school girls sharing their thoughts on media images of everyone from Nicki Minaj to Adele to Michelle Obama. In the video, which was put together by the American Psychological Association, the girls talk about the images of women they see all around them and how they feel about the way girls today are portrayed. They talk about the clothing that's made for girls today and how it makes them feel.
